Camping Cliches (How Many Times Have You Heard...')

Have you ever noticed how certain statements get made over and over when the subject (and photos) turn to camping-related subjects?

Like this one:

'My idea of camping is a 5-star hotel.' (Usually spoken as though it's an original thought.)

And a few more:

'My idea of camping is a room at Motel 6 and black and white TV.' (Same as above.)

'Now that's my idea of camping!' (Should be on a T-shirt.)

'Some water damage, easy fix.' (So easy that you haven't fixed it yourself, Mr. Seller, because...?)

'Barn find, no leaks.' (Popular craigslister line, cuz it's what we all want to hear.)

Any others occur to you?


  1. One of my faves: "don't know if the appliances work, haven't tried them."
    Huh .... why not? Wouldn't "working appliances" be a selling point?

  2. How about...There are some water stains but I haven't noticed it leaking lately??

  3. Good one! Heard that not too long ago!

  4. The tarp over the camper it to protect it, not because it has a leak!
